Previous Names: Victoria Theatre
The 1,400-seat Victoria Theatre was built as a vaudeville/movie theatre opening on December 4, 1911 with 7-acts of vaudeville. By 1916 it became a full time movie theatre and was renamed the Strand Theatre. In 1923 it was equipped with a Robert Morton 3 manual organ. I think that sometime in the 1930’s or early-1940’s it was gutted and converted to the downtown Hofheimer’s shoe store.
As of 1995 it was empty. It might not look much like a theatre from Granby Street, but it’s unmistakable from the rear.
